A Circuit Model to a Directive Triangular EBG Antenna

Abdelhak Ferchichi, Ali Gharsallah


In This paper, we propose a directive triangular EBG antenna. This approach is derived from using an EBG surface near to a triangular patch with two grilles. The antenna frequency chosen is the 2.45GHz. The directive antenna is simulated by using HFSS and Electrical model. This proposed antenna presents a very high directivity.
